Emory College was founded in 1836 by The Methodist Episcopal Church in the small Georgia town of Oxford. The little school struggled for decades, and finally began to prosper in the late 1800s. By 1914, the Methodist Church was looking to create a university in the South, and Emory College was looking to expand. Asa Candler, founder of The Coca-Cola Company, facilitated this process, he offered seed money and donated land to facilitate this process. The University received a DeKalb County charter to build at its present location in 1915.

Established in 1915
Dooley, a skeleton used in the biology department in 1899, became the unofficial mascot and guardian of school spirit at Emory. Once every year during Spring an unidentified student dresses up as Dooley and creates mild mischief. The student even has the ability to end a class early just by walking in and declaring the class to be over!
